“Through BIAV’s educational events and resources,
I am able to share all I’ve learned with others, so
they, too, can get the much-needed help they
deserve. If it were not for my daughter’s strength
and the support of BIAV, I don’t know that we
would be in the place we are today.”
~ Kelly Lang, mother of Olivia Lang
